UGA Alumni Association 2021 list of fastest-growing businesses owned by UGA alumni

The University of Georgia Alumni Association has unveiled the 2021 Bulldog 100. This list contains the 100 fastest-growing businesses owned or operated by UGA alumni. The list is created by nominations, and this year the Alumni Association received 429 nominations for the 2021 list.

The 2021 Bulldog 100 celebrates organizations from over two dozen industries, including agriculture, construction, health care, nonprofits and software. Out of the 100 businesses, 81 are located within Georgia. 

The list this year does not reflect the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on businesses. Each year, Bulldog 100 applicants are measured by their business’s compounded annual growth rate during a three-year period.

The list is based on submitted financial information for 2017-19. The Atlanta office of Warren Averett CPAS and Advisors, a Bulldog 100 partner since the program began in 2009, verified the information submitted by each company. 

The UGA Alumni Association will host the annual Bulldog 100 Celebration virtually Feb. 11, 2021, to celebrate these alumni business leaders and count down the ranked list to ultimately reveal the No. 1 fastest-growing business. 

“These alumni demonstrate the incredible value of a degree from UGA and we are committed to continuing the tradition of recognizing their achievements and connecting them with current students, who will become the next generation of entrepreneurs,” said Meredith Gurley Johnson, executive director of the UGA Alumni Association. “These leaders inspire us by bringing better solutions and building stronger communities, so we will ensure they are celebrated even as necessity requires this to be done virtually.”
